   I really want an external solution, for all the reasons that have been
   discussed.  I am not attached to m4 specifically, but I don't see any
   better candidate.

Introducing ability to call out to m4 (or whatever) also introduces the
desire to customize the call out: when (and how often), with what scope
(environment, restrictions), other parameters, etc.  This is messy.

Maybe better would be to drop @macro entirely.  This forces the external
solution, but people can make do with the tools most comfortable to them.
There is no real requirement for makeinfo to own the top-level.
